Hey team! I am back!

So sorry for the hiatus, but I kind of felt as though I should take a bit of time to sit and look at all I was doing as well as all I would want to do. I was starting so many different projects all at once that I forgot to look at where I was going and why. This is how I seem to do it.

-I pick the direction I want to go and get so excited about what I see that I begin to run.

-I forget to look 3 feet ahead, forget to see what path I’m on. My eyes are so focused on the horizon or my own feet that I can’t see any of the ditches or sticks in my path.

-I fall into a hole or run into a river and have no idea how, what, or why I have ended up where I did.

-Then, I spend the next two weeks crawling out of the space I fell into, just in time to see the horizon and start all over again.

And so I am crawling out of the hole.

Only this time, attempting some semblance of re-evaluation before I begin running, so that this time, maybe I can avoid the hole.

I am beginning my daily journal again, I want to reconnect and share me. This community was so stunning. It was honestly a place I came to that felt warm and exciting. I looked forward to my daily time I would spend sitting and thinking.

I am so thrilled to recreate this again. I’m excited to get back to the community, “the dead poet’s society.”

Welcome to Act II!

Much love and appreciation.

    “As I have repeatedly written in one form or other, blogging is not about writing posts. Heck, that’s the least of your challenges. No, blogging is about cultivating a mutually beneficial relationships with an ever-growing online readership, and that’s hard work.” (Alister Cameron)

    Will admit, it’s a relief to know that the radio silence was caused by pesky holes and rivers and not because of something so horrible that it couldn’t be climbed out of.

    Now however I shall have to start using my brain again to participate in the upcoming discussions…. hmmm. Think brain decomposed during quiet time. May have to communicate in neanderthal type grunts.

    My heart leaps
    My eyes weep
    My lips speak
    This thing called life
    This thing

    You don’t pay me?
    I won’t do it!

    Welcome back Allison…we have all missed hearing from you dearly!!!!! Don’t worry I have the exact same malfunction!!! I get really into something and I get so hyped about the prospect of what I want to do, and actually doing it, I don’t stop to think, what is the BEST way to go about getting to my goal, so I end up with mud on my face more times then not!!!! But we ‘your dead poet society’ are happy to have you with us!!!

    Hello Allison… and welcome back!

    So, as I’ve already told you in your latest post… don’t do too many things at once. Make a list and think about what you’d like to do as first, as second and so on. Little by little, step by step. Sure, this way is much slower, but in time you’ll reach much more than in a rush. Besides, the slower way usually doesn’t end up in a hole. So here’s my inspiration for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfkAkMExDrQ

    Lots of love,
    Silvia

    Hey, good that you’re back. I think if a person successfully merges short term goals with long term goals they’ll better avoid the whole “pitfall” thing. Both are a necessary.

    welcome back Allison!
    It´s so good see your posts again.
    I really missed your words and your criativity. And the way that you talked always inspires me to think about my life and my acts. Thanks a lot.

    I’m glad you’re back too! It’s always encouraging to read thoughts from a kindred spirit. I know many of us can relate to this post.

  • Irene

    on April 30, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    I’m actually new to this, I’ve never found a blog worth participating in. I agree with Ruthie, there is a kindred spirit about this whole thing.

    Or one could say we see life though the same pair of eyes, but everyones vision is slightly different so I guess that might not work. Some of us do have a stigmatism. LOL

    Hello Allison, yesterday I watched your blog and to me it was rather nice of you to be so open towards your fans it seems to me you are a peoples person though you are a well known actress to me, you are friendly and I admire that. Also you have a really beautiful singing voice it’s so calming to hear you sing. Allison I love how you act the role for Chloe to me she is one of my greatest character in Smallville and the way you acted the role the casting director choose the right person to play her. So Allison continue doing the blog act well.

    I totaly agree with Linda over here. You have a real talent for singing, I love you’re rendition of the Ray Noble tune. Makes me think of Diane Keaton singing in Annie Hall. That’s a compliment ! hey yeah you have some kind of Diane Keaton vibe maybe… You sure would be great in comedies ! Not to say that you wouldn’t be great in Shakespeare -who wrote a bunch of comedies in fact, what am I saying… Apparently what Woody Allen taught Diane Keaton was that she had to work her personality, because this was her real genius. I’ve just red that once… Anyway…La-di-da…La-di-da…
